    Re-painted callipers a sort of silvery/goldy colour?!? Mixed some hamerite smooth silver with hamerite black.

    Finally got the arse end to how I want it. (Tinted windows,tinted reverse lens, carbon fibred the silver trim under boot lid, removed badges & plastidiped the bottom of bumper trim)

    Into the bodyshop this week to have the front & rear bumper painted.
    They were touch up pened galour by previous owner.
    Wish people would realise that a touch up pen is to touch in and not paint on.

    Also stripped all the silver trim around the dash, 4 doors,gearstick & ashtray ready for some carbon vinyl treatment today :D

    Done the wrapping today.
    Hardest part was removing the strip with the 2 chrome bits on the ashtray. Apart from that all went well, nothing broke, no chance of anything pealing and most important, no bubbles.

    Even done the back of my magnetic tax disc holder with an Audi logo over top.

    Car looks great mate, I'm from Merthyr but now live in Cornwall, just bought a B6 TQS myself and have a few questions. What did you use to tint the lights and how much did it cost for the window tints if you dont mind me asking. My folks still live in merthyr so am back every so often, will keep an eye out for your car. Also check out Rebelmotorsportclub, Am a member still but not very active, they go out on some cracking drives and are a great bunch of people, just a shame i'm so far away now.
    Keep up the good work.

    Hi mate. Where in Merthyr you from?
    First time I tinted headlights I used lamin x.
    This time round I split the headlight and painted the inside bits Matt black.

    Window tints cost me £100 (bit of mates rates there mind).
    I used c&m windows, Merthyr.

    Which do you prefer then? Joey mod or laminx? Laminx seems much easier ha.

    Don't suppose you have pics of both do you? And how did you find the laminx affected light output? Was it noticeable? I see they claim it doesn't affect light, but wanted a real answer and not marketing ha.

    I like the look of lamin x but not on my blue car.
    Rhyso (on this forum) has it on his dark grey/black Audi and it looks the biz!
    Light output is affected and does scatter the light a little.
    Lamin x wins for the easiest to do by a long way.

    Lamin-x...

    The early lighters flipped, the later ones are fixed.

    Nice work on the joey mod, looks great. Much more work than the Lamin-x, but ultimately well worth it.

    What a lovely avant! I have just got a 2l petrol avant sport with those wheels (were they optional extras? I haven't seen many with those wheels on). I really wanted that front bumper but mine has the more rounded on. I am thinking a Cupra splitter may make mine look a little sportier. The colour is stunning as well.

    :thumbup:

    You got to go for the lcr splitter.
    Really sportens up the front end.
    Shame I kept nose diving mine at the cattle grid tearing it off. :(

    Now I've made corner splitters out of it. ;)

    I've done a quick Google search for images of the lcr splitter and am I right in thinking it looks like the Cupra one? How do they compare cost wise?

    They need very slight modification to fit our cars though. Basically, there's some tabs for locating them on a proper leon bumper, which obviously we don't have. A quick hacksaw/ dremel of them though and then it's a case of self tappers to fit it.

    Lovely VRS, my mate had one in black but the front end looks wrong when standard, I think it's the lights. Yours looks miles better like that.

    They are quite minging standard.
    I blacked out the grill, light inserts & the fog light surrounds & also added the lcr splitter to smarten it up a little.

    No sorry don't know.

    Flat head screwdriver is all you need to pop the lens out to check. Takes a couple of seconds.
